In theory, the two easiest matches to predict are Treviso v Toulon and Saracens v Ospreys, though in neither case do I think it'll be anything like the massacres that some predict: Treviso did hold their own against Bath and are improving more generally, while Ospreys did show signs of promise against Clermont.

I think the bonus point system is flawed.

A team should not get a bonus point for scoring
4 tries but should for being 4 tries clear.This would
stop the nonsense of scoring 4 tries then taking your
best players off and hanging on for the win.The losing
side should still get a BP for being within 7 points.

:thumbup: ;)

In the French Top 14 the bonus point is for being 3 tries ahead.

I think that's superior, the bonus point should be 1 point and go to 1 team to reflect the closeness of the game only. 3 tries ahead or a losing bonus point.

Another difference is that, in the Top 14, a losing bonus point is for a 5-point margin of loss rather than a 7-point one.
